How to Process What You Dislike About Someone
The quality you dislike in someone is a quality in yourself you need to embrace more! What!? Yup, you need to become more like them—(obviously not literally, especially if they’re mean, abusive, racist, etc.)--but in a conscious, positive way. For example, being irritated at someone’s selfishness means you need to be more “selfish” by following your own needs—not in an insensitive way like the other person may being doing it, but in an aware, constructive way. Or, say you dislike someone who uses their power to oppress and hurt people. Their behavior is awful but the question is, how can you use your own power in a positive way? This episode shows you how to process what bothers you about people (including the really bad stuff) and use it for your personal growth. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Envy Is a Projection of Your Unlived Awesomeness!
We project our unrecognized, unlived inner awesomeness onto other people and then feel bad that they possess these great qualities instead of us. It’s such an unconscious process that we have no idea that what we’re jealous of is actually something within ourselves we haven’t yet become conscious of! drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Conventional Psychiatry and Psychology Are Pseudoscience
The current paradigm in psychology and psychiatry is deeply flawed. A few years ago an international review study in which 270 researchers on five continents, including the U.S., examined a hundred research reports in the most prestigious psychology journals, and what they discovered was shocking: Only 36% percent of the findings held up when the experiments were redone. If you ask researchers anywhere in the world whether they have a problem reproducing experiments in biology, chemistry, or physics, they’ll tell you, no. So, what’s up with psychology? Unlike all other fields of science, psychology is unique in that the human mind is both subject and object. In other words, the object being studied—the mind—is the same thing as that which is studying it—the mind. The mind is studying itself. The result is that objectivity in psychology is subjective! In order to get around this dilemma we need a process paradigm. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Inner Freedom! What Is It? How Can You Feel It?
Attaining a sense of inner freedom is one of our core needs but this experience is often blocked or unconscious. This results in problems like addiction, depression, and anxiety. There are two ways to make your inner freedom conscious: The first is to process the negative altered states of mind your problems induce; the second is to process the positive altered states of mind you unconsciously seek through drugs, alcohol, sex, exercise, work, success, play, love, eating, sleeping, dreaming, meditation, medication, incantation, ritual, prayer, music, etc.. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

How to Access Your Inner Freedom and Use It to Process a Difficult Issue
A practical exercise on processing and transforming a difficult life issue. Problems that plague you over time are held in place by an unseen block to your inner freedom. The symptoms happen in order to awaken you to this block. In a sense, the problem isn’t really the point—it’s merely a catalyst to help you become more conscious of your process. Doing so helps you begin to make real change. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Conscious vs. Unconscious Desire
Your deepest desires are often hidden from consciousness and manifest as unconscious forms of yearning—addiction, loneliness, depression, etc.. Processing these issues can connect you with what you really need in life which, in turn, can transform your problem. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Processing Your Inner Critic Transforms Your Depression!
The story of a thirty-nine year-old waiter who complained of chronic depressed moods despite the fact that nothing particularly depressing had occurred in his life. I helped him transform his depression by processing his inner critic (which he didn’t realize he had). Depression isn’t an “illness" to manage but rather a meaningful and purposeful personal growth process trying to happen. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Processing Depression vs Masking It With Antidepressants
I made a bet with the director of a prestigious psych clinic that I could help his severely depressed patient by processing his depression more than the director could by prescribing medication. I won the bet ! : ) Join me today for a wide ranging discussion of how the pharmaceutical industry has fed the public false information about depression, brain chemistry, and medication. Depression is a symptom of a powerful personal growth process trying to happen, not an “illness”! drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Wisdom Isn’t What You Think It Is!

Music Beat Psychiatry!
The story of my client, Sandy,* who was depressed for a year following her divorce. While we were processing her sadness, she kept getting distracted by a song playing in her head. I encouraged her to focus on how the song made her feel and she had a life changing experience. Problems, symptoms, and distractions aren’t wrong—they’re meaningful processes trying to awaken you to a new awareness.

Medicine Is Clueless About the Mind’s Role in Health and Illness!
Your psychology doesn’t only manifest through your mind, it expresses itself through your body too. In fact, the notion of mind and body as distinct entities is a misnomer since at the deepest level they’re inseparable processes. Your physiology isn’t only governed by biochemical interactions but by subconscious mental / emotional processes, as well. Psychotherapy, self help, and personal growth aren’t only about working on your thoughts and feelings; they also require processing your body experiences—symptoms, illness, and whatever else you experience physically. drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig

Brain Science Has it Wrong About You!
You have the power to transform your states of mind; you’re not a victim of brain chemistry. Awareness is the key to changing your problems but neuroscience is in complete darkness about it. Brain studies have given us knowledge about neurons, neural circuits, neurotransmitters, and brain lesions but they tell us nothing about awareness itself, and how we achieve agency from this mysterious source called “I” (which can’t be found in the brain). drzwig.com - instagram.com/drzwig - youtube.com/drzwig - facebook.com/drzwig
